Yep! They should've gone further saying "now that it's reduced to numerical/digital representation rather than real time analog 'sound' it is no longer music in the strict sense because if you look at a micro sec worth, it's just a bunch of #s"

i'm not sure i understand why Floyd is making a stink unless they arent getting paid. getting a buck from a single track as opposed to zero from an unsold full album would seem to be the way to go.

if they are basing it on the wish to keep it an "artistic whole" - concept album, then why would they even let radio stations play a "single" track for decades and decades? yeah, yeah - to get people to buy their "whole" concept album - what a crock after the work is 30+ years old.

apparently Gilmour and Mr. Grumpy have little better to do with their time and money (and judging from their latest music, i agree)

torrent sites = "is it any wonder?"

OH yeah, don't get me wrong, I can see them being exactly as you describe...it was just the "it ain't music anymore" defense that seemed odd.
